Hungarian Satan tells the true story of a miserably failed former prime minister revelling in the role of the regime’s boogeyman and ruining the chances of a democratic future for Hungary. Its movie villain mash-up video fits the song’s concept perfectly. The song will be available on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services on 7 Sep.
During the past weeks LA-based iconic label Cleopatra Records have released 2 compilations, each featuring a new Bankrupt song. PUNK ROCK HALLOWEEN II – LOUDER, FASTER & SCARIER contains our new track Jason Ruined My Halloween, while PUNK ROCK CHRISTMAS 2 includes the even newer Bankrupt track When Johnny Saved Christmas.
During the past 4 years, Cleopatra Records have released 2 Christmas-themed and 2 Halloween-themed punk compilations with some of the best and most loved punk rock bands in the scene. (Vandals, Reel Big Fish, Dwarves, UK Subs etc.) We’re one of the few bands that were featured on all 4 compilations and the only one coming from a non-English speaking country. This time we’ve even made it to the vinyl version, and we’re really proud of this.
Cleopatra Records from Los Angeles will release the compilation Punk Rock Halloween – Loud Fast & Scary on 13 Oct 2017.
The compilation will feature a brand new Bankrupt tracks alongside cool Halloween-themed punk rock tracks by legendary punk rock bands like The Dwarves, UK Subs, The Vibrators, 999, The Adolescents, Reel Big Fish, Calabrese and Down By Law just to name a few.
